Left Parties Support Kisan Organisations Call
for Bharat Bandh on December 8
The Left parties extend their solidarity with and support to the ongoing massive agitation by Kisan organisations from all over the country against the new Agri laws.
The Left parties extend their support to the call given by them for a Bharat Bandh on December 8.
The Left parties condemn the RSS/BJP’s malicious campaign, on preposterous charges, against the struggle of our annadatas to safeguard Indian agriculture and the country’s food security.
The Left parties support their demand for the scrapping of the three Agri laws and the Electricity (Amendment) Bill, 2020.
The Left parties appeal to all other political parties and forces who stand with the farmers cause and have demanded the repeal of these laws to extend their support and cooperation to the December 8 bandh call.
